Balance Ability is the UK’s first and only accredited ‘learn to cycle’ programme for children aged 2 1/2 to 6 years old. Level 1 & Level 2 courses available.

How does Balance Ability benefit children?

  • Gets children cycling much earlier without stabilisers.

  • Increase children’s confidence, self esteem and resilience

  • Physical improvement through the development of Gross Motor Skills such as balance, co-ordination, agility, core strength and flexibility.

Direct Sports Pro taught seven sessions at our school during the summer term. The staff were always punctual and well organised, setting up in good time before afternoon school began. They were enthusiastic and motivating with the children, (despite some very hot weather!) and the children really looked forward to the sessions. Expectations for behaviour were clear and therefore the children were very well managed. The sessions comprised of a range of activities and took account of the differing abilities of the children in the class. Some children had very limited experience of balance bikes before the sessions began but one of these children actually learned to ride a pedal bike over the course of the sessions. As you can imagine, his parents were really pleased! This was a great experience for the children and even those who were more experienced still gained a lot from the activities. I would certainly recommend the team and would hope to book them in again in the future.
